Waymon Brownlee (1942 - 2010)
We have lost a good friend and Early Ford/Mercury enthusiast. Waymon Brownlee passed away Sunday morning December 19. Waymon was born in Gwinnett County, Georgia in1942, married Shirley in 1964 and started his well-known old Ford and Mercury parts business in 1979.

Waymon was nationally known as an expert on 1946-48 Ford and Mercury automobiles. He restored three antique vehicles to perfection, including a 1947 Ford Sedan Delivery, 1947 Mercury Convertible and 1947 Mercury Coupe, as all three received perfect 1000 point scores and Dearborn Medallions in concourse judging.

Waymon was a member of the Early Ford V-8 Foundation and the Early Ford V-8 Club of America. He joined the Early Ford V-8 Club and Regional Group #24 in 1975. In the local club Waymon served as President in 1979 and 1980. He also served as co-chairman of the 1977 and 1985 Eastern National Meets, was elected a Director of the national club in 1996 and also served on the judging committee and was appointed Chief Judge in 2003. On the 1996 ballot for election of Regional Directors, Waymon claimed ownership of 18 Ford and Mercury flatheads and stated, "I still give lots of information on restoring and detailing these cars by telephone to many people who call for assistance. I will always love and appreciate the old Fords and work in any way I can to keep the Ford and Mercury spirit alive." This statement is quite a legacy for Waymon.

His many friends will miss Waymon locally and across America. We extend our condolences and well wishes to Shirley, his daughter Melinda and son Justin. We pray that Waymon will rest in peace.

I can't find any decent photos of Waymon or Shirley. 
Does anyone have any?

Waymon was everywhere, always working for us, but never even trying to get into the limelight.

Waymon ran several times for the National Board and, I think, won every time.

Waymon & Shirley Brownlee
This photo goes back quite a while - perhaps back into the 80s.
Waymon was always there - working to help the National, our Club & everybody in it.
              We surely do miss him.

Our man John Caldwell is already the National Director for the S.E. Region and doing a heck of a job - we're really PROUD of him.  Now, he is running again in 2019.  Here's his "resume" with lots of great info - Thanks for what you do John.
